We booked them online about 2 weeks before our trip, gave them our flight info and they were waiting for us a the airport. Bus was filled with about 12 passengers and ride was about an hour into Tamarindo. Driver drove everyone to their designated hotels and the price was very good as compared to other Transfer companies. Same process back to airport. Everything was top notch and I would recommend them to all travelers.

We used Tamarindo tours for airport shuttle and was very satisfied. We also booked three tours through them , the Palo Verde river cruise and the Monteverde cloud forest where we were driven in a very comfortable, air condition van with excellent driver. Unfortunately the Albatross sunset sailing tour we booked through them was not a pleasant experience. We were hoping for a relaxing sail to a beach for snorkeling and a sunset sail, while enjoying a gourmet meal. This all was spoiled by the free cocktails, beer and booze constantly served to what ended up being a floating booze party. There were two children on board which was totally inappropriate. A very poor case of false advertisement. I just wish they had informed us what the theme of the tour was.

Amazing! This was the highlight of my trip to Costa Rica. Tour guide Rudolpho was exceptional-- knowledgeable, fun, accommodating, intelligent and fluently bilingual.

The buffet lunch was out of this world.

Overall definitely a 5-star experience in every way and well worth every penny spent for the memorable photos alone.

Thank you also for the very sweet taxi drivers who picked me up and dropped me off in Playa Grande.

This experience could not have been any better.

Think this is my second review of TTS, but worth the emphasis. We booked a Palo Verde Park river tour with them, were picked up in a nice clean Toyota SUV with driver Christian (who is the manager of the Tama office), who stayed with us for the whole trip. I recommend this company, knowing that there is a tour booking office on every street corner in town. They seem very reliable and if you need an airport transfer (we had a car), I suspect they would be a good choice for that also.

We always use this company for our airport transfers and they are always on time, easy to find at the airport because they have a sign with your name and you can’t beat the price of 20$ USD per person. We also like the private shuttle option as the driver will let you stop. They also have wifi in the bus

Don't book! The day of transportation, we paid the company online with our visa card, and it did pass on the credit card as per the credit card statement; but the company said they did not receive the payment. She said to pay the driver and she would reimburse us directly on the credit card. We then had to pay cash to the driver - who said otherwise the money would come off of his daily pay.
Thereafter, we have had several communication with the company and they refused to reimburse us. As it has already passed on the credit card, we couldn't do anything there either. Ultimately, we paid twice for the transportation.
Be aware and don't book this company!

Dear BoardingPass We are currently looking for any communication with customer of ours that have claimed to having been charged by credit card after having paid online and only found one so I have to assume it is your claim. For lack of identification here on tripadvisor I cannot tell if you are the same person but the one that we were corresponded with was Doug. Firstly we received a claim from Doug saying that he had a charge of an unidentifyable company called Vindi Tamarindo Guanacaste........this is not our company ...it is from a supermarket in Tamarindo. We told the customer that wasn't our charge Secondly, you cannot make an online payment through our webiste. We only send payment links through our bank and we can check if the client has paid or not and it also shoiws if something is pending If you are Doug, please read the e-mail we sent in response of your claim and you will understand that you were not charged by us and we would kindly like you to delete this one star review If you are not Doug, please let us know when you traveled with us and show your name ( you can do that per e-mail of you like) so we can see what happened. Sincerely Maria

Do NOT trust this company. They are totally unreliable. They cancelled our booking 20 minutes before pickup time. They claim we didn't pay and the last communication I received from them was "We will send you a link for you to pay". Our booking had been confirmed but they never sent any link to pay, despite us telling them we wanted to settle the service ahead of time.
On top of it, they do NOT answer the phone.
We're about to miss our flight now because of this irresponsible, unprofessional and unaccountable service.
Shame on you Tamarindo Transfers & Tours.

We were on the fence about whether to rent a car or not for a stay in Tamarindo. In the end we didn't, which was the right choice since we really didn't need one in the end.

We ended up booking with Tamarindo Transfers and Tours which worked out really well. We went with the shared transfer, which was US$25 per person each way, paid directly to the driver in cash. The credit card info you enter when reserving your spot online is just used to hold your spot.

Keep in mind that if they are unable to find at least 3 passengers, the minimum charge for the van will be US$75, whether you are one or two people.

It's handy to have WhatsApp on your phone as they will contact you for updates if needed or vice versa. This is how we updated them with our progress through the airport so they could inform the driver.

The pickup from our rental back to the airport went really smoothly as well.

Also note, we didn't reserve a round trip with them as we first wanted to see how it went before committing to a return transfer. In the end, we were very happy with the service and booked our return while in Tamarindo.

We would definitely book with them again in the future!

We had good dependable transit from LIR airport, and then back to the airport. The other passengers in the shared shuttle talked about how dependable and safe the drivers of Tamarindo Shuttle are (compared to other options apparently.) We agreed.

Be sure to pay in US dollars, as the current exchange rate means you pay more in Costa Rican currency. They take cash at the end of the trip instead of credit cards.

My family booked a TTT shuttle from our resort in Tamarindo to LIR upon recommendation from a fellow traveller. We were in the resort's pick-up zone 15 minutes early and waited for about 30 minutes before calling the number provided to find out where the shuttle was. My initial call was answered, then dropped. Multiple subsequent calls went unanswered. Our resort staff were great and continued calling, but they didn't have any better luck than we did. Not wanting to miss our flight we took a cab and were at least 10 minutes into the trip before someone from TTT called back and said the shuttle would be at the resort in 10 minutes, or a bit more. We weren't about to turn around at this point and our taxi driver suggested that we stop, let the shuttle catch up to us, then hop on it when it finally did to save $ (we'd paid in advance for the shuttle). He phoned TTT himself multiple times before getting through to someone and was initially brushed off. He did eventually get through to someone helpful who thought they could have the driver stop for us, but at this point we'd lost confidence that this would happen and took the taxi the rest of the way. The experience cost us $90 and isn't one I'd recommend. Maybe they're better for booked tours, but I can't recommend them as a shuttle service.
